out to you, george w. bush released ten years, george h.w. bush released 14 years and bob dole released 30 years. mitt romney has only released one. how is that the standard? >> well, good morning to you as well, norah. as to the two years, of course, he released one year going back and also the estimates that he has for this year. that's two preliminarily on the second year. >> we don't know how much he paid in taxes on 2011. >> not yet. but he said he would release those going forward. as to the standard that you mentioned, the practice has varied. you cited some examples of some. but there's others who have only gone back a few years. the larger point is this. there is no claim or no credible indication that mitt romney's done anything wrong. he's within the range of past practice and custom. but number two, why is the media focused on this issue, 10, 15-year-old tax returns or college transcripts, when we should be focused on the large issues and the main issues. >> is governor rick perry a member of media? >> i'm sorry. >> governor rick perry is not a member of the immedia
. chief justice john roberts, who was appointed by president george w. bush to lead this court in a more conservative direction initially was poised to strike down the key part of the health care law. but then he changed his mind and the outcome of this entire case. after oral arguments in the landmark case, sources tell cbs news roberts agreed with the court's four conservative justices that the heart of the law, the individual mandate that requires all americans to buy health insurance, was unconstitutional. but as roberts set out to write the court's majority opinion-- according to two sources with specific knowledge of the deliberations-- his views began to change. he forged an alliance with the court's four liberal justices and crafted a decision upholding the law under congress's power to levy taxes. that argument had gotten little attention and was uniformly rejected in the lower court. roberts then withstood a month-long desperate campaign by the conservatives led by justice anthony kennedy to bring him back. but roberts did not budge. on the last day of the court's term, after r

president george w. bush released nine. but mr. obama's challenger, senator john mccain, released just two years and told us today that's good enough for romney, too. do you think it's creating a distraction, though, that the obama campaign... >> that's exactly what the obama campaign wants to do is create a distraction. anything to avoid the economy that's in the tank. >> reporter: even newt gingrich now backs romney on this issue. >> well, i thought that he owed it to the country to share more. he's agreed now to go to two full years of disclosure. at the time he hadn't done that. >> reporter: but he had this advice for the romney campaign. >> i think they've got to be tougher, more direct, and i think they will be. >> reporter: part of the challenge for romney here is that it was his own father, george romney, who set the standard for presidential candidates when he released 12 years of his tax returns, scott, when he was running back in 1968. >> pelley: nancy, thank you. in utah last night, an airline pilot suspected of murder made a desperate attempt to fly away. what happened next is
. obama four years ago, john mccain got 4% of the african american vote-- well below the 11% george w. bush received when he received when he ran against john kerry in 2004. now the president continues to have strong support, high approval ratings among african americans but some democrats are worried about turnout and, scott, romney is hoping that his economic message will resonate at least to the point that voters aren't motivated to turn out against him. >> pelley: jan, thanks very much. today the house of representatives voted to repeal president obama's health care law. it is the 33rd time that house republicans have done that even though they know the repeal won't go anywhere, it won't be considered by the senate-- which is controlled by the democrats-- and, of course, the president would veto it. with so much urgent business before the house, why spend so much time voting to repeal the law over and over again? we asked nancy cordes to look into it. >> the bill is passed. >> reporter: house republicans have now held so many repeal votes lawmakers are losing track. >> this is the

made it to the white house? jimmy carter, george h. w. bush. both were one-termers. our best president? abe lincoln, career politician. franklin and teddy roosevelt is career politician i.c.e. harry truman, career poll didn't. ronald reagan? actor, but did he spend two terms as governor of california. the point is, being president is not like being america's ceo. for one thing, a private sector boss gives orders, then he fires people if they're not carried out. a president has some power, sure, but often hat to be the power to persuade the other two branches of government to go along with what he wants to do. it's called politics. it's tough, and it's tricky. so then why do we continue to believe it's so simple, even a ceo can do it? now, the good news here for mitt romney is that he actually was a governor of massachusetts. in fact, i hear he engineered a healthcare plan that covered 98% of residents. in fact, he could make that the center piece of his campaign, call it romney care. oh, yeah. never mind. anita. >> thank you, derek. if you want to respond to something derek says, wheth
and norah that was something no one would have expected in 2005 when president george w. bush put him on the supreme court and that was something that not even the conservative justices expected back in march when the court heard arguments in this case. i am told by two sources with specific knowledge of the court's deliberations that roberts initially sided with the conservatives in this case and was prepared to strike down the heart of this law, the so-called individual mandate, of course, that requires all americans to buy insurance or pay a penalty. but roberts, i'm told by my sources, changed his views decideing to instead join with the liberals. he withstood-- i'm told by my sources-- a month-long desperate campaign by the conservative justices to bring him back to the fold and that campaign was led, ironically, by justice anthony kennedy and why that's ironic is because it was justice kennedy that conservatives feared would be the one most likely to defect but their effort, of course, was unsuccessful, roberts didn't budge, the conservatives wrote that astonishing joint dissent

this year, compared to 36 for george w. bush at this time in his 2004 re-election campaign. the president has even made fund-raising calls to big donors from air force one. in 2008, mr. obama out-spent john mccain by roughly 3-1. buoyed by the enthusiasm of small donors as well as big money from wall street and hollywood. but this year, wall street is far less generous, and the small donors far less excited. mitt romney has had no trouble raising money from wealthy supporters. this past weekend at estates in the hamptons, where the price of admission was $75,000 a couple. the president is also warning supporters about the money from outside groups who can raise unlimited amounts, where the gop has the advantage. >> the other side's spending more money than ever before. you've got billionaires just writing $10 million checks. yeah, they just -- they're spending money like nobody's business. >> reporter: well, the one place where the president so far has a head start is in the eight key swing states, where his campaign has spent $40 million in advertising to date. compared to romney, who's
. >> bill, thank you very much. press secretary for george w. bush, good to have him. >> thank you. >> how do you measure, if any, the defining of mitt romney during this period by these attacks? >> well, there's an easy way to measure, and that's polling. and what we know is since mitt romney won the nomination, despite almost $100 million of ads thrown at him by the obama campaign, he's cut the gap in half. he's down about two points in the polls, which really means the race is neck and neck. >> and does the candidate, the soon-to-be candidate after the nominating conventions, plan to at some point begin to do something different than what he's doing now? >> well, doing something different? i think if you look, again, at the polls, charlie, that's of registered voters. when you go to the more likely voters, the ones more intense about the race, he's winning. so, i think mitt romney is actually getting no credit for running what's been a really smart, sensible campaign, trying to keep the focus on the economy, when you have an incumbent who's going to do everything he cannot to talk about
